These wonderful gifts from nature are powerful healers, but also need to be treated with respect. While natural, they are high potency and highly concentrated. 5 drops can be equivalent to a whole pound of the actual plant. Please follow these cautions and guidelines while enjoying your oils for your safety.
1. Do not apply undiluted (neat) essential oils directly onto skin; dilute with a carrier oil first.
2. Do not use on babies, children or pets unless directed by a physician.
3. Keep away from flame, heat and ignition sources (essential oils are flammable).
4. Always conduct a patch test of diluted essential oil on the inner arm before using; do not use if redness or irritation occurs.
5. Do not ingest essential oils.
6. Keep essential oils out of eyes, ears, nose, mouth or any body opening.
7. If pregnant, check all oils before using. Some oils are not for use when pregnant.
8. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
In Case of an Accident
1. If essential oil gets into eyes: Immediately flush with cold milk or vegetable oil to dilute; if stinging persists, seek medical attention.
2. If essential oil gets on hands: Use cream or vegetable oil to dilute; wash with soap and warm water; repeat if necessary.
3. If ingested: Call your poison control system.
4. If ingested by a pet: Follow directions on label or call the Animal Poison Control Center at 1-888-426-4435.
